Rubio attacked Trump’s clothing line during the 11th GOP presidential debate, arguing it reveals the billionaire’s hypocrisy on jobs creation.

“[Trump] can start tonight by announcing that all the Donald J. Trump clothing will no longer be made in China and Mexico but will be made right here in the United States,” he said during the contest in Detroit.

Trump has frequently vowed he will create massive job growth and renegotiate the nation’s international trade deals as president.

Rubio on Thursday night accused the real estate tycoon of exaggerating his business achievements as a means of lining his own pockets.

“He has spent a career convincing Americans that he’s something that he’s not in exchange for their money,” he said. "Now he’s trying to do the same in exchange for their country. This is a fact.

“He talks about the great businesses that he built,” the Florida lawmaker added. "[But] he inherited over $100 million.”

"Wrong, wrong, wrong," Trump interjected in response.

Rubio has escalated his attacks on Trump in recent weeks, questioning the New Yorker’s claims that his business background will boost the economy.

Trump has responded by arguing that the freshman senator both lacks any private sector achievements of his own and has a poor attendance record in the Senate.
